ROBBERY AT FIRES.
Th,e wb,Qla,RlB robbery which has
bjQQtno th,o isgalnr things Rt fire. Is
shameful. Not n fire has occurred
of Inte where there was a chance to
j;et at anything, that tins not been
the occasion of disgraceful plunder
ing. At the fire on Saturday night
rooni9 that the flames never came
near were entered and valuables
abstracted. Tvo of Mr. Ucrger's
band boys ttIio reside In the neigh
borhood, but who were engaged at
tha residence of Princess Llliuoka
lanl at the times were robbed of nil
tho clothing they possessed, (except
what they wore,) and other valua
bles ; and they wore not the only
unfortunates, by many. Is there no
way of putting a stop to this? Re
missness of the police Is Justly
chargeable with a portion of the
blame, but not all. Where there is
iiteh a crush of people It is utterly
Impossible for so few policemen, if
they were the most diligent and ex
pert in the world, to watch every
contemptible thief. The only thing
to do is to keep everybody, except
ing the firemen, and those whose
property is in danger, at a reason
able distance from the Arc. Draw
Hues across the streets, say one hun
dred yards from the lire, and lake
into custody everybody who at
tempts to run the blockage.
Persons who ought to know, say
that there is at the present time
abundance of unsafe kerosene oil
in tho town. The legal test of 1 00
degrees is admitted to be too low.
Jt should be raised to 115 or more.
This will be for the Legislature to
consider. It appears from the Mar
shal's record of tc3ts that a large
proportion of tho oil imported of
late hai been of a quality just to
stand the test, and but little to
tpare; from which it would seem
that shippers of oil to this country
aim to make it of a quality to satisfy
the law and no better. It is confi
dently asserted that some oil now in
the market does not come up to the
tC3t. We can well understand thai
this might be the case, notwithstand
ing tho fact that any oil tested and
not coming up to the legal staudard
has not been allowed to land. In a
shipment where a case or two only
are submitted to test and found sa
tisfactory, there may be hundreds
of other cases, not tested, that would
not stand thc-test. The lest should
be applied to a greater number of
cases, taken from different part3 of
the shipment. In view of tho dan
ger attending the use of inferior
oil, it would be well for the autho
rities to investigate and ascertain if
there is such stuff in the market as
some people aver.
m. bush-and The" "white
We think Mr. Bush is rather hard
on the "white skins," when lie
(.barges them wholesale with being
the cause of the native's poverty,
and that poverty he charges was
brought upon them by tho white
.skins persuading them to go into the
sugar business, where they all fail
ed without an exception ; which is
no doubt true so far as failure is
concerned, and he ma' have added
that they also failed most of them
in other- branches of business.
But we think the white skins cannot
lie truthfully charged with the fail
ure and poverty ol every incompet
ent and improvident native. If they
are to blame for that, to whom shall
we impute the failure and poverty
of the many white &kins that have
failed to make fortunes in these isl
ands, although they commenced
ljuinesN as sugar planters, mer
chants, etc., as the native had
done, and like the native, failed of
i.uccess. The white skins are no
more to blame for tho native's pov
erty than they arc for the povcity
among the Chinamen and white
men. We read, "The race is not
always to the swift, nor the battle
to the strong, nor yet riches to men
of understanding, time and chance
happen to all." The natives aie
not exceptional. But we may re
mark that it is the industrious, the
level-headed, tho temperate, the en
terprising and the "keep a pitching
in" citizen that, as a rule, succeeds
in all countries, and incompetency,
laziness, improvidence, intemper
ance and vice are great helps to lead
Will Mr. Bush inform us which
road tho natives are travelling, that
he complains of as being made poor?
Will he at the same time show us
how much more wealth the native
possessed three generations ago than
jiuatfjaj,j.jJM.' hi llr&MJLav4fugvvnMlM'e?nrJlPf
he docs lo-dny, that wc may have
somo idea of the vnstneso of the
sum that has been taken away from
him? If they arc travelling the
mad to wealth', with the same Judg
ment, industry, honesty and push,
that the white man docs, ho bhould
succeed where the white man fuic
ccods, and tlune honorable excep
tions now to be found umonu the
Micccssfu! natives, you will find
have followed the successful road.
If they have chosen the road to
poverty and are poor (us a mlc),
themselves alo.no mo to blame.
Of course, there are exceptions:
sickness, iircs, floods and other mis
fortunes frequently cause poverty
nud suffering. Such teems to be the
order of tho world. That sharpers
and shavers have taken advantage
of the confiding native and others
to rob them of property, or that one
native has robbed another in tho
same way, are not to be denied, tia
such acta are found in all countries,
and it la unjust to denounce a whole
race for the real or supposed wrong
act of a few individuals of that race.
We think Jlr. Bush must seo
though unwilling to acknowledge it
many acts of the "white skins"
that hae been honestly aimed at
the upbuilding of the natives of
A Mechanic "Mission aim."

THE WAY TO THE VOLCAKO.
Sincu the opening of the Volcano
road, for 15 or so miles, wc have
had a large niimb-r of tourist
coming this way to isit the crater
That this Is tho most attiaetive
route to seo that wonder of the
world, is saykg only the truth. The
accommodations offered by tlw Kl-
i nan mo not excelled in our island
I waters. Wider & Co. furnish re-
I lurn tickets to Ihe Volcano and back
tor 850. This includes all traveling
expenses and the stay in tho orator.
I Peions stopping ovir at the town
I oi llilo will have to pay their own
expenses lor hoard nun lodging
while there. Several places in town
furiiNh the boit accommodations
from $1 to $2.50 per day. Hotel ac
copumoditiuiis arc yet n thing of ilia
futute, hut no one need be dcternd
from coming on that account as they
will llnd that llilo people will mike
thum corofutluble during their stay
he're. A tine livery stable is kept
by Mr. Wilson, tit which horses and
carriages can be had at extremely
reasonable ratea for driving or tid
ing about the town.
llilo bay affords a good quiet har
bor and is the iiuest natural one in
the island. Tin: twn hidden
away among the tropical trees with
iti beautiful background of waving
cane llelds stretching up to the
woods and then the grand forests
reaching away up on to the slopes
of Mituiiu Loa and Kea, and to out
top all the lofty snow capped peaks
of those mountains reaching away
up Into and iJioe the clouds form a
picture nowhere else to be seen on
The new carriage road to the. Vol
cano now unclies to Olaa, the i Id
half-way hou(! and a drive out its
smooth "toad bed, through the Waia
kea eari'j fields, tho luuguilieuiit
"Panai-wa" forest, and over the
rolling country beyond, is one of.
the lhn"t drives on Hawaii net. The
probability Is that within the next
IS monllis it will bo liuishcd to the
crater, and one then c-ui diive fiom
Hilo to Kilaiica in live or six hours,
through one of the most Interesting
poitioui of th! j is'aud.
Touiists can spend a week very
pleasantly in visiting tho places ol
interest in and near town. The last
great How of lava, which so neatly
threatened Hilo with destitution
from Mnunn Loa is but a few min
utes' walk or lido fiom the landing.
The Rainbow falls, ihe gorge ol
thePecpee falls, with ils boiling pots
and waterfalls, ihe nattiibl bridge
over the Wailuku, the beautiful for
est as seen at Buoganville, he fine
sea bathing at Cocoanut Island,
e ral gathering at Keaukaha, a visit
to flirt class sugar plantations, and
many other places and lliingi of in
terest, offer to isitois enough to
keep them busy for a week or tn
days. We expect that Hilo will he
tho most attractive route to the
Volcano and we know that its people
-ill always try to make it so. llilo
